Sean DuffyIs the nation ready for its first 'Real World' congressman? With the announcement Wednesday that Wisconsin Rep. David Obey will end his political career, the conservative guy on MTV's 'Real World: Boston' is now the front-runner to fill the seat, and he and his supporters are taking credit for bringing the powerful Democrat down.

Sean Duffy, who spent 1997 finding out "what happens when people stop being polite, and start getting real," told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that his rising campaign for the seat played a part in Obey's retirement after 41 years in office.

"If I was to guess, I'd guess that was one of the considerations," he said.
